Re: Question about how to use Bookends

Try holding down Option+Command in Bookends and then dragging the reference to DT. Or use Edit -> Copy Hypertext Link and then pasting into DT. Jon Sonny Software This has been a very helpful thread, glad I found it. Question: is there now, or might there be going forward, a way to have DTPO index ...

Annotating two column PDFs

I just ran into a hitch annotating some PDFs, and I wonder if anybody knows a workaround. Some of the journals that I have PDFs from are two column journals. The result is that attempting to highlight text in those PDFs does not work at all. This is not just a problem with Bookends, the same problem...

Re: Optimal combination of DT and BE?

Ph.D in the Humanities candidate here and this is my workflow, fwiw. I divide the workflow into two separate sections. 1. Managing the pdfs/epubs/whatevers and citations 2. Processing the information I use BE to manage the pdfs and the citations. When I acquire a source I import it to BE and make s...

Optimal combination of DT and BE?

This is not a question about future possible interactions between the two programs, nor is it a feature request. Rather, I am asking those of you that already use both DEVONThink and Bookends together what you have found to be the optimal way of parceling out your work between the two applications. ...

Notes in the note string

There is a minor problem that I don't know how to solve with notes in the note stream. When I ask it to add a note it does so. But when I finished dictating into the note, and close it, another note has been added before the one I'm dictating in. It's a blank note with nothing in it. It is easy enou...

Re: I am probably missing something . . .

Did you notice that there is a difference between "Book" and "Edited Book"? Declan Yes, but silly me I automatically think of an edited book as, for example, a collection of essays by multiple authors rather than a book like an edition of Sextus Empiricius with a Translator and Editor. This is prob...

I am probably missing something . . .

I feel silly. In the Book ref type I can find Series Editor(s), but I cannot see just plain editor. I am sure there is something I am overlooking or have not yet grasped about Bookends. So can somebody please thump me on the head and get me straightened out?

From Sente to Bookends

I have two documents in Sente (one is in NWP and the other in Pages) that I need to convert to Bookends. Any ideas on a method better than just plodding through the documents citation by citation? Your suggestions would be appreciated. Cheers!

Switching, so looking for some advice.

I am switching to Bookends, because, as you might've guessed from an earlier post, my previous reference manager would not format my bibliography in the way I wanted. Bookends can do it very easily. However, that raises two rather thorny problems. First, I'm going to have to convert two chapters of ...

Re: Is this format possible in Bookends

I wish to report with great joy that the format was possible both in NWP and Mellel. I did not try in Word, personal preference. Good to know since I need that format. Cheers!

Empiricus, Sextus 1936 Sextus Empiricus: Against Physicists, Against Ethicists. Trans. R. G. Bury Loeb Classical Library. Cambridge and London: Cambridge University Press. The way this will display is not accurate. I want the 2nd line to be the first line in a new paragraph. That new paragraph shoul...

Is this even possible from within bookends

]Is this format even possible within bookends. I am attaching a tiff that shows the bibliographic format that I need for my school. Not sure if possible with bookends. Would make decision for it much easier if it is. Thanks to anyone that has a suggestion other than edit in the WP once it is scanned...
